Barrow Raiders are building nicely ahead of the 2023 Championship season, with coach Paul Crarey having 24 players registered in his first team squad.

The majority core of the team have re-signed ahead of the 2023 campaign, minus former player-assistant coach Carl Forster, who has moved to North Wales Crusaders as player-head coach.

Speedster Tee Ritson has also joined St Helens on a loan deal for the upcoming Super League campaign, but could still feature for the Raiders in 2023.

Salford duo Greg Burke and Jack Wells have made the move to Cumbria on two and one-year deals respectively.

Experienced Burke has made a single appearance already for the Raiders – on dual-registration last season. He has made 42 appearances for Wigan, 21 for Hull KR and 84 for Salford.

Nigeria international Rio-Osayomwanbo Corkill makes the switch from St Helens for the 2023 season on a one-year deal. He was released by the reigning champions at the end of last season.

Warrington youngster Luke Broadbent joins his hometown club, following in the footsteps of father Gary, who enjoyed a 17-year career playing for Widnes, Salford, Whitehaven and Barrow.

Ben Evans joins Wales international team-mate Tom Hopkins at the Matt Johnson Prestige Stadium in 2023 from Bradford. Italy international Anton Iaria has also re-signed for 2023 alongside Scotland’s Charlie Emslie.

Meanwhile, experienced centre Greg Worthington makes the move, while Connor Saunders has signed his first professional contract with the club.
